Liz Leuthner is a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT). The Iyengar system emphasizes precise alignment and develops inner awareness through physical posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The method is rooted in the ancient ashtanga (eight-limbed) philosophy of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, a set of aphorisms that frame a way of being in the world that is practical, experiential, devotional and personal. Only the world’s most knowledgeable, rigorously trained teachers earn Iyengar Yoga Certification. (Read more about BKS Iyengar and Iyengar yoga here.) Thank you to my teachers, CIYTs David Yearwood and Kim Peralta, for inspiration, motivation and faith.
